About Albion

Albion Investors is a private investment firm with offices in New York, NY and Chicago, IL. Since 1995 we have managed investments in excess of $2.7 billion of client capital in private debt and equity.

Albion invests in traditional areas such as buy-outs, recapitalizations and minority growth equity. We focus on two areas of direct investing: first, we seek to be a lead investor in micro-cap investments, defined below, which typically fall below the initial investment size of most institutional portfolios. Second, we look to partner and co-invest with other institutional investors in transactions with EBITDA greater than $4mm. Albion's strategy is to grow its companies organically and through acquisition to a size which is more appealing to institutional investors.

Lead Investments in Micro-Cap Deal

We define micro-cap deals as those involving businesses with EBITDA of $0.5 million to $3 million. We focus on a variety of industries and transaction types but are particularly interested in situations which are presently smaller than most institutions would consider but have the potential to grow to a more efficient size. Albion's principals invest portions of their own capital in every lead transaction the firm pursues.

Private Equity Fund of Funds

Albion currently manages aggregate capital commitments to private equity limited partnerships in excess of $1.5 billion in over 100 private equity partnerships, including LBO funds, mezzanine funds, venture capital funds, sector funds, community investment funds and distressed investment funds.

Albion Investors has a history of making sound investment decisions by evaluating thousands of investment opportunities and aggressively choosing those with the most promise for our existing portfolio. The diversity of our investments is proof of our commitment to evaluating a wide variety of industries to uncover unique investment opportunities. When evaluating an opportunity, our professionals draw from decades of experience as operators and investment professionals with deep experience in both debt and equity markets. Albion brings a committed group of resources together to pursue investments in the lower middle market with both flexibility and certainty.
